Thanks for the info. However, I am sure with the proper modifications an N55 could make 408hp. After all, the N20 with single twin scroll can make almost 300hp, or 150hp/L.

And of course any Alpina car retains the full BMW warranty. They're produced in BMW factories anyway.
Right, although sometimes limited production vehicles like this are sold with no warranty. But since you've pointed out that it is just a B3 S with some further upgrades, it makes sense it will have a warranty as well.
